When your boss announces the company will be kicking off summer by trying something new, you can’t help but envision relaxing on a beach, catching that big summer blockbuster, or at OpenX, an epic afternoon Ping-Pong tournament. But you may never have considered kicking off summer with a new and different type of opportunity called OpenX Cares.
At OpenX, we spend a lot of time focusing on supporting our people and our business partners. At the same time, we all live and work in broader communities that also deserve our attention. In an effort to meet the urgent and unique needs of each of the broader OpenX communities, we launched OpenX Cares – an initiative where the OpenX offices across the globe joined forces with local non-profits, leveraging our passion, innovation and unparalleled energy to give back to our communities.
OpenX prides itself on its commitment to contributing to community all year round, spanning from Thanksgiving food drives to Adopt-A-Child holiday giving to walking in support of Autism awareness. One of the greatest points of connection for our global company is when we work as one, contributing to each of our local communities. That is exactly what happened yesterday in London, Munich, New York, Pasadena, and Menlo Park.
Here is a recap of the first annual OpenX Cares initiative:
In Pasadena, our team assembled food bags for delivery with L.A. Food Bank – an organization whose singular mission is to mobilize resources to fight hunger across the greater Los Angeles area. Dozens of the OpenX team in our Pasadena office assembled bags for distribution for over 23,000 senior citizens.
In Menlo Park, members of the OpenX team joined Stop Hunger Now to package meals for the undernourished globally. In just under two hours a group of 30 to 40 volunteers packaged over 10,000 nutrient rich meals for those in need.
OpenX Cares first annual day of giving back was an enormous success with participation from around the world. We’re eagerly looking forward to the next one!
